About Dr. Lee
Dr. Jay Lee was born and raised in Portland, OR. His interest in oral surgery developed over time, and while he was completing his training, he realized the specialty appealed to him more than any other. Joining the team at LACOMS was an easy decision for Dr. Lee. Dr. Relle was his mentor when he was at UCLA, and he liked that the practice focuses on hospital-based, major surgeries.
Dr. Lee enjoys being an oral surgeon for the simple fact that he enjoys helping patients. He finds his job incredibly rewarding because he gets to do what he loves every day. Oral surgery combines all of his interests and allows him to take care of patients in a full scope. He works hard to help patients feel comfortable and reassure them that he will treat them like his own family.
Dr. Lee received his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Pacific Union College in 2007 where he graduated summa cum laude. After completing his undergraduate career, he continued on to dental school at UCLA. In 2011, he graduated with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Once he was done with dental school, Dr. Lee decided to take his education one step further and pursue a medical degree. He felt that holding both a dental and medical degree would help him provide the very best, most comprehensive care to his patients. He received his Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in 2014.
